Natural gas drilling is booming in Ohio, but some residents of other states farther west — the heartland, as industry-worshipping conservatives often call it — are suffering worse. The documentary Split Estate examines the way drillers run roughshod over farmers and ranchers who don't own the rights to what's beneath their land. Split Estate screens on Friday, January 29, 6:30 p.m., at Lakeland Community College, 7700 Clocktower Dr., Room T129, Kirtland. The screening is presented by the Northeast Ohio Gas Accountability Project.
